Liberty Loan Subscribers Offered 4y2 Per Cent. All holders of First and' Second Liberty Loan bonds who wish to have them converted into bonds bear ing 4 -2 per cent interest should pre sent them at their bank at once as It is desired to get this matter out of the way before the next liberty loan subscriptions begin coming In. All 4 per cent bonds must be con verted during the present period 'or the privilege of conversion will be forever lost. The 3-1-2 per cent bonds may be converted now If de sired, or they may be held and later converted into bonds bearing a still higher rate than 4 1-4 per cent pro vided a future loan should be floated at a higher rate. It is thought likely that some own ers of the 3 1-2 per cent bonds will prefer to keep them because of tht higher market price at which they are selling, due to the fact that they are entirely exempt from . all taxes, Including Income and excess profits taxes, while the 4's and the converted 4 1-4's are exempt. only In amounts of $600 or under 'trWried' liy lheta payer. Conversion of the bonds is entire ly optional with the owner, and It will be necessary for the owner to make application to the bank in every case, regardless of whether or not the bonds may be in possession of the bank, and to pay the costs of eon version before the bonds will be sent it: by the bank for conversion.
